points. these are not implausible assumptions. mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points. could have to up to 36 points. that is if it does not change. d, ands does get realize if the white college graduates face about the same, it means that met romney would have to get north of 40 point margin of the white voter. let's take a look of where we are now. this is the gold standard. breaks. this shows that obama is leading by 8 points. if you look at the averages, it is a bit high. the averages are running about four points. you are probably up by five points. this is within the averages. it is similar to the pole from the heartland monitor which will talk about later. overall top line, a look at the margin, 91 points. that is basically identical. 7222 among 852 margin. most have been showing this. what this means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority vote is quite logical based on these and other data that looks like what he will get. this shows you the break out for college graduates. , obama is doing a little bit better among white graduat
lieberman and i will send to the united states congress is the mccain-feingold campaign finance reform bill. thathe reason it's important is that all of the other issues, whether prescription drugs for all seniors that are opposed by the drug companies or the patient's bill of rights to take the decisions away from the hmos and give them to the doctors and nurses, opposed by the hmos and insurance companies, all these other proposals are going to be a lot easier to get passed for the american people if we limit the influence of special interest money and give democracy back to the american people. and i wish governor bush would join me this evening in endorsing the mccain-feingold campaign finance reform bill. >> you know, this man has no credibility on the issue. as a matter of fact, i read in the "new york times" where he said he co-sponsored the mccain-feingold campaign fundraising bill. but he wasn't in the senate with senator feingold. and so, look, i'm going to -- what you need to know about me is i will uphold the law, i'm going to have an attorney general that enforces the law. the
a sense of how relentlessly message to john mccain is. he used the term spread the wealth of around three times. another thing that strikes me is how obama is making eye contact with became the entire time he is talking. he looks right at them. there was a lot of discussion from the earlier debates in 2008 that mccain was having a hard time making like act -- making eye contact. it came off as rude. another thing that jumps out on me is the contrast of the youthful obama and a much more senior mccain. obama actually was more the adult in my opinion in that relationship in that he was very calm and cool under fire. mccain, although that last debate was his best, he had moments where he was a little erratic and some of those earlier debates. >> you said, both president obama and governor romney share a sense of trepidation about going mano-a-mano on live television. how may it went up boxing them in? >> neither one of them has and enjoyment of debating. that is a weird word to use. i think the ones who are really good at it and the ones who really come across of the people who get up on tha
for a lot of good things to happen. >> if you go back and look at the congress 10 years ago when mccain-fine gold was passed, it was a tiberi different country. there was a great deal of commentary about congress becoming more polarized and more centered on the left and right. mccainearly 2000's, john carry 20% of the republican senate caucus formication/fine gold. it happened in the house because moderate republicans voted for it against their party leadership. those senators who voted for mccain- feingold are gone. the party has moved on and the ball. the ball. but there the 1990's were perennial discussions about changing the campaign of finance. it took place in the world or someone like the republican leader was interested in making sure each of the republicans got a good deal or not a bad deal but he is not opposed to reform or legislation. this is partially or largely because we have an fcc that is deadlocked at 3-3 because it takes four votes. that is a 2/3 requirement for the fcc to do anything. it is now as a prize of they don't. i think there really is a change in the way co
? gosh, i remember when obama was running against mccain, and it seemed like every day i heard about the muslim and the birth thing, it was terrible. they didn't think that that was biased. it was the story of the day. host: beverly, you're in missouri. are you seeing a lot of campaign commercials on the air? caller: well, in mccassill and aiken. host: but not on the presidential level? caller: no, very few. i think obama has written off missouri, because even though these women here and two men, they are all -- i haven't found one democrat. host: beside yourself, huh? caller: that sort of tells me how their mind is. they're not going vote for obama, but they're not going to vote for romney. i asked, this one lady i ride with, she said she's not going to vote for the president this time. i didn't ask her why, because i want to remain friends, but she definitely wanted to vote republican, but she just can't bring herself to vote for romney because of what they'll do to social security, and she said mine's safe, but i have children and grandchildren. that's the way they're thinking. ho
. [cheers] and senator mccain came up. in a very busy time, he would still come here every year. and i think it is in no small measure because he basicly started his life as an ngo. that is what he was pictured as, a community organizer. then he picked a secretary state who was a walking ngo. so i am very grateful that he made time to give us a speech here today. i am particularly appreciative of what he came here to speak about today. mr. president, the podium is yours, and thanks for coming in again. [applause] >> thank you. thank you so much. thank you. thank you. thank you very much. please be seated. to president clinton, thank you that somebody needs to make him secretary of explaining things. [laughter] although they did not use the word "things." [laughter] president clinton, you are a tireless, passionate advocate on behalf of what is best for our country. you have helped improve and save the lives of millions of people around the world. i am grateful for your friendship and your extraordinary leadership, and i think i speak for the entire country when we say that you continue to be
it on the table, i gulped. as part of an overall deal, i could accept it. when mccain was except -- suggesting this years ago, i criticized it. it is part of an overall package, which i can accept. >> the next one, though. >> you are right. the next one is probably the hardest of the mall. >> "the tax deduction for mortgage donors." -- owners." >> if i were in charge, i might not want to do that. as part of an overall package, i think you have to. i live in a very high cost place, very high tax, housing interestre enormous, pe bills on mortgages are huge. a lot of money for a lot of friends of mine. this is not abstract. nobly, i would say i do not want this. but again, it is part of a package. >> said is critical. th -- that is critical. it is not immediately clear to a given person whether his tax would go up or down under this. in any case, it just, as a matter of logic, it makes no sense. >> how long have you spell that way? -- felt that way? >> for many years. you realize there is no logical reason for that to be a tax deduction. in other countries, such as canada, they do not have a tax
. john mccain himself says it starts with immigration. it is not the only issue. but how does the republican candidate run the gauntlet of a primary season in which region where there are attacks from the white -- from the right? we saw it with matt wittman. -- meg whitman. thegot attacked in primary. she bought out pete wilson and she wanted to deport her nanny by the end of the election. the hispanic vote turned out a dent in huge numbers for jerry brown who did very little to win their affections. >> we could easily be having this conversation about the democratic difficulties among whites. it would change -- if you have the candidate with half the hispanic vote, we would talk about why obama would drop from 42% whites to lower. a hurdle that is so high. the share of whites who have to win become the reagan-s. -- reagan-esque. >> hispanics are not attached to the democratic party the way african-americans are. we cannot just assume because there is a growth of spending votes that those of democratic votes. republicans who run for office did very well with hispanic voters. a
with whatever the hot story of the day. i remember when obama was running against mccain and it seemed like every day i heard about the birth thing. it was terrible. it was just the story of the day. host: you are in missouri. are you seeing a lot of campaign commercials on the air? not for the presidential level? caller: no, very few. i think he has written off misery. even though the women here -- i have not found one democrat. host: besides yourself? caller: that tells me how their mind is. they're not going to a vote for obama, but they're going to vote for romney. i ask this one lady i ride with who said she's not going to vote for president this time. i did not ask her why because i wanted to remain friends. she definitely wanted to vote republican b s rney because of what they will do the social security. i have children and grandchildren and that is the way they are thinking. host: beverly nice to hear from you in misery. up next on the independent line is frank in tulsa, okla. that whenve noticed the commentators for the various media outlets talk about romney or obama that they ge
to reform the internal revenue service. i've worked with george bush and john mccain to normalize relations with vietnam. it was a wonderful bipartisan accomplishment that i am proud of. it is not just identifying republicans. the rules have to change, and i promise you, i believe i can persuade americans to amend the constitution, to allow the congress to ban both outside money and limit the amount of money in campaigns because it is corrupting our political decision-making. we need to change the rules of the filibuster and reduce the number of committees, to reform the congressional pension. there are many changes that need to occur, not just identifying somebody that i can work with, but who am i going to fight. i will be fighting with mitch mcconnell and harry reid on a regular basis. >> thank you. you have 30 seconds for a bottle. -- rebuttal. >> throughout my adult life i have been fortunate to serve on a number of boards, commissions. i was a school board member over 20 years. you learn to work with people. on a school board you work with educators and people with the community. i ha
including john mccain and roy blunt, martin omalley, and david axelrod. at 4:00, the host of the face the nation talks with crist christi, newt gingrich, and marha blackburn. they are brought to you as a public service by the network and c-span. they began at noon eastern with "meet the press," "this week, fox news sunday, state of the union, and face the nation from cbs. you can listen to them all on c- span radio here in the washington, d.c. area. nationwide on xm satellite radio. you can go online to cspanradio.org. >> every nation has -- generation has sacrificed. we were then spending their money. we are now even more -- much more spending their money. we are leaving them a mass that will be a very difficult to deal with hand. just think of who was to come here first and take us over. the last thing i want to see is our country taken over because we are so financially weak we cannot do anything. we are moving in that direction. we are on the edge of the cliff. we have to start fixing it now. otherwise we are leaving a disaster to our children and grandchildren. we could even lose
was a lawyer for john mccain which i thought was a very important job. nothing like being a lawyer for stephen colbert. maybe one day i can say i work for comedy central, too. i want to give you a brief overview. at the end of july, we are trying our best to project with the money would come from and what the differences would be in terms of the various sides. the point we're trying to make, one that there is a real difference in political money strategy that they are employing the cycle. the obama campaign is heavily reliant on small dollars, regulated money, contributions under $2,500 from individuals. the campaign has total control over and can spend as they want. the exception your is priorities usa which we were saying maybe would make 60 million earlier. authorities have been saying they wanted to make $100 million. there were not a lot of what the liberal democrats coming forward to give them money. in recent weeks, there has been a little bit of a turnaround. it is nothing compared to what the republicans have had on their sides. there are a few different factors. it is easier to raise
recently, john mccain seemed to moffett on the leadership side before he even got to the debate by being willing to or suggesting the debate be canceled or postponed so they could stay in washington and work on the bailout project. that made him look and l unleaderly and did not seem to be able to handle multiple problems at once. for me, and i think this will be important this particular year, our candidates, office of problems. no one doubts obama can relate to the people, that he is likable and can balance or do the democratic party. what we're wondering is what is the leader of the park since we have a four-year pattern that did not make as much change as we had hoped. mitt romney of course is known as take charge ceo leader, but his big challenge will be showing he is democratic, and like the rest of us, -- >> democratic with little lead. >> he has to overcome that. challenging for both. >> you can arm wrestle. you are closer to the microphone. >> i think one of the issues this year because it was one of the few growth industries in the united states, the legion of fact checkers wi
government aid. that's a real contrast to senator mccain who in 2008 had a pretty aggressive housing plan this. administration ended up being less aggressive than the republican opposition wanted to in 2008. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you bothful >> thank you. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> there's a lot of research out there that, in fact, mobile usage is even higher among minority communities than it is among white communities. i've seen some startling research that in some of these minority communities, 70% or 80% of the usage of the broadband is through mobile applications. i'm not a critic of mobile broadband in any way whatsoever. after the wireless transition, we're in the business, so no reason for me to be critical. my comment is not a platform comment. it's more a device comment. and that is if you're going to do mobile on a laptop and get real broadband speed, l.t.e.-type speeds, i don't have any problem. if you're in the educational context and talking about mobile smart phone and a lot of this access of broadband, in minority communiti
was in 2008, and then senator obama and senator mccain came up. when the president took office in a very busy time, he would still come here every year. and i think it is in no small measure because he basically started his life as an ngo. that is what he was pictured a community organizer. then he picked a secretary state who was a walking ngo. 1 so i am very grateful that he made time to give us a speech here today. i am particularly appreciative of what he came here to speak about today. mr. president, the podium is yours, and thanks for coming in again. [applause] >> thank you. thank you so much. thank you. thank you. thank you very much. thank you. appreciate it. please be seated. everybody have a seat. good afternoon, everybody, and to president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction, although i have to admit i really did like the speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. [laughter] afterwards, somebody tweeted that somebody needs to make him secretary of explaining things. [laughter] although they did not use the word things. [laughter] president clinton, you are a tirele
large swaths for senator mccain. give us a sense of how the state is laid out and how that has changed over the years electorally? guest: phrygian traditionally years ago -- virginia was a democratic state of the byrd machine and it changed as the times changed. people were democratic were less enthusiastic about some of the demographic changes, the voting rights act, and they become republicans. the constitutional party candidate started out in politics in virginia as a democrat. then he became an independent. then he became a republican. schools closed in norfolk rather than to have blacks and whites together. but i don't think that the racial animosity in virginia is at an all-time high. it is present, but i think that the people of virginia have handled the situations and issues on race very well. people realize that there are going to be individuals on the far end and that incidents will happen. as a virginian, i thing the tone is not one of abject hostility. that askse's a tweet about urban centers such as northwest. social concerns such as homicide -- guest: give me the question
senator mccain and president obama won. you can see patches of blue in northern virginia and in the east. guest: what you see is an america in miniature -- you have an area with a lot of highly educated people and defense contractors and government workers and a lot of affluent people who tend to be democratic. it depends speak more conservative in other parts of the state'. in the south side of virginia, you are pretty conservative voters. the democratic votes tend to be concentrated in the cities like richmond and hampton roads. the democrats tend to win the cities. the battle in virginia tends to be in the suburbs. what you have is a state that is up for grabs. geographically, republican swill win --republicans will win many more counties. host: we're talking about virginia as a battleground state. here are the phone lines. host: who are the people groups that are supporting president obama and mitt romney? guest: 1 you see in virginia is the traditional partisan breakdown. you see a strong gender gap where female voters are much more inclined to support the democratic ticket than the
to talk. he has been reluctant to talk. that is a contrast to senator mccain who had a pretty aggressive housing market plan. this is an illustration and that being less aggressive than the republican opposition wanted to be. >> we will have to leave it there. thank you both. >> thank you. >> what our "newsmakers" program with shaun donovan again today at 6:00 p.m. on c-span. >> it is the first thing an article, getting medicare costs under control. it is the number one priority. it is the most untouchable thing. that will cause more trouble than any other problem we've got this bill the, getting medicare costs under control is the number-one thing. >> the sale we also charged eight obies for their medicare coverage. -- you say we also charge of the obese for their medicare coverage. >> i did not have to fight hard for it. this is another thing where everybody knows this to be true. someone has to pay for it. there should be penalties. but not really a democrati you have to be responsible for your personal behavior. someone is going to pay for it. >> we are not the only ones making argum
in prince william county, and republicans who voted for mccain were saying, "i do not know if romney is going to win." a sense of not wanting to vote for a loser. it does affect some voters. >> on the other hand, it can be a moment -- earlier in the election cycle, where you say that guy that i thought did not have a chance, i am not the only one who likes him, and maybe he can get the nomination. obviously, we are curious. we want to know who is winning, but we also want to be part of a conversation with other people and know what other people are thinking. i am not sure that is such a bad thing. i do not know that needs to be put in isolation before we vote. >> it is an easy way to inject drama today into something that is not going to happen for months and down the line. it is pretty sleazy journalism, but it is probably no worse than going to a speech and writing down what the guy says. >> it is good information to have, as a journalist, if you are looking at whether things work, whether people were impressed, whether people are willing to, say, four years ago to vote for a black
't seem to quit. and republicans have their problems. people say it is my turn. from bulk, to mccain, to mitt romney. i was lucky enough to cover both conventions. i have to tell you, at the republican convention, it is a little disheartening because the average age of the delegate was almost dead. [laughter] and that is not a good sign for a party moving forward. fidel castro says we are throwing out our old economic model. and the president says, can we have it? and our debt past 100.3% of gdp. and you have a obama setting -- opa! i like the strong because it turned out perfectly. this is the tea party. this little girl looks a lot like sarah palin. and she is saying, drink it! [laughter] this was drawn -- michele bachmann had just won the straw vote. and he is looking down and he has a tramp stamp. dear lord, what did i do last weekend? [laughter] and this was when the republicans took the house back. and this does let the honeymoon commence. i love the look on his face. this is one of the things that drives me nuts. the new york city council just voted that he was right and they
